Covering twenty-nine of the most influential Anglican figures from the sixteenth century to the present, Richard H. Schmidt deftly chronicles their lives and work while capturing at the same time the deep personal faith that they have managed to communicate so powerfully to the rest of the world.
These icons of the Christian faith include not only bishops and scholars but also homemakers, poets, novelists, and teachers. Each chapter contains a brief biographical sketch of its subject, a selection of short, representative quotations from his or her writings, and several questions for reflection and discussion.
Written in a personable style that brings readers into direct contact with some of the church's most admired witnesses, Glorious Companions will be valued both as a collection of insightful biographical information and as a lasting source of inspiration.
Richard H. Schmidt is editor and executive director of Forward Movement Publications. He has also served as an Episcopal parish priest in West Virginia, Missouri, and Alabama and as managing editor of the magazine The Episcopalian.
